Pinellas Park, Florida -- Pinellas County detectives investigating the death of a man whose body was found in a canal on the south side of the Jacaranda Retirement Home Monday night have identified him as 17-year-old Manuel Vivanco, of Dunedin.

The circumstances surrounding his death are still not known at this time, however, detectives say the incident is not believed to be suspicious in nature.

When Vivanco's body was found authorities say it is believed he was clothed in a soccer-style uniform. The shirt was a V-neck style, tan in color, with yellow or gold stripes on the shoulders, the matching shorts are also tan in color, with a yellow or gold stripe on the side. The shirt has the letters "BWIN" on the front; and on the back collar are the words "REAL MADRID." He was wearing socks and no shoes.

Anyone with information that would assist investigators in this case is asked to contact Sergeant Rob Snipes of the Robbery/Homicide Unit at (727) 582-6200.
